OK, Doldrums are not the tidiest band in the world but there’s something infectious and inspiring about their -mess- music. Actually, it sounds like a whole spirit that would hover over Montreal and inspire several artists, including Grimes. On “Heater”, Doldrums sings ‘I’m a people person, are you?’ on a dramatic, frenzy, epic acid soundtrack. There’s a will of independance and of being free that go further than their unconventional sound. It sounds raw and honest.
The ‘homemade’ video, which was shot by Jordan Minkoff, also features appearances from Errhead, CCB and Petra Glynt. About the track, the artist detailed:
Doldrums also added to The Fader:
The Montreal-based electronic project headed by Airick Asher Woodhead, recorded this new 10-track album ‘ESC’ after a long tour for their second LP ‘The Air Conditioned Nightmare’ (Sub Pop). You can listen to the previously released single “RUNNERUP” below.
‘Esc’ will be independently released on June 30 and is already available for pre-order here.
